Plans for Partitioning in v11

The reaction to the new table partitioning feature in PostgreSQL 10 has been overwhelmingly positive, but a number of people have already astutely observed that there is plenty of room for improvement.  PostgreSQL 10, already at beta3, will go GA some time in the next month or two, and presumably once it does, more people will try out the new feature and find things they would like to see improved.  The good news is that there is already a substantial list of people, many of them my colleagues at EnterpriseDB, working on various improvements.  The following list of projects is complete to my knowledge, but of course there may be projects of which I'm unaware especially at companies where I don't work.  If you're working on something else, please leave a comment about it!
